Michael Dolby (March 31, 2012)

Master of the wire and plug, with ladders on his truck

Into Pats and Sox and Brus—avers the Yankees suck

Cullen is his middle name, and Christopher’s his son

Hastens to the outside shower when the winter’s done

Andrew, Addy, Ellie, Carrie, know who Papa loves

Every Friday night they know to find him at the Pub

Larks and doves and chickadees come eager for his thistle

Dad taught us all to wink, and he taught us all to whistle

On Sunday morns you will find him hanging in his shed

Lazily he dozes off, a ball cap on his head

Burbon Street to Boston, St. John to San Antone

You know Mike Dolby’s happiest with family and home
